In an interview with IGN, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said that his company is currently working on a new cost-cutting program. She wants to "significantly" reduce them. Despite the optimization of the business, Take-Two currently has no plans to lay off employees.

Recall that in February 2023, Take-Two already talked about reducing costs. Then she announced that she would try to reduce annual expenses by more than $ 50 million, and did not rule out layoffs. A month later, the company actually conducted them in a number of divisions, including the Private Division.
